I am on my 9th week of this birth control. I have experienced no breakthrough bleeding which is good because my periods were pretty bad.

Is this common or will these side effects go away?

After 3 weeks on Loseasonique, I have developed extremely high blood pressure, gallstones, and a kidney problem. I didn't have any of these problems before. I am not happy. This is a dangerous drug.

So far on the ninth week on the pill, I've had two periods of spotting for a couple of days and one prolonged period (1-week) of bleeding, which wasn't as heavy as my regular period, but was definitely longer. My main concern though is that my appetite has become virtually uncontrollable and I've already gained quite a few pounds. I am just constantly feeling hungry, which is discon ... Show Full Comment
